PostSubject: Failure of the Day   Fri Oct 31, 2008 9:48 am

Everyday we are confronted by people around us failing in some way or another, and sometimes you see something that you can't just keep to yourself. Let this thread be an outlet.

Today I saw a dwarf without armor running repeatedly into the lava next to Dwarf Ch. 19. I figured he was going for the damage without armor titles and in good humor told sent him a tell saying that if he jumped off cliffs instead he could increase his title productivity. In sending him the tell I found he was lvl 40 and named Torque, I then assumed (and I won't make this mistake again) that because he was on at 2 in the morning just to grind titles the guy was fairly hardcore.
Hours later, not being able to sleep, I figured I'd surf the web a bit and eventually I found myself on the Realm War Leaderboards. I checked all the all-times first and was interested to find Torque high on the Heroes list and first on the Assassins list. I then went on to check the weekly leaders, not knowing that they reset friday mornings. It was here that I made a most peculiar discovery. All of the people on the Heroes list had only 3-5 kills except the dutiful Torque who in the time between server closing time and when they were shut down had amassed 54. Recalling what I'd seen previously I deduced that they were self kills probably from the same manner as I'd seen earlier, and he had simply taken a break from when I saw him until not too long before the server closed (you don't need that much damage for all of that string of titles). That mystery solved I continued looking at weekly leaderboards finding myself amused that tier one characters were on it, but when I came to Assassin I again found Torque on top with 54 kills. Torque must be a GM then, but 54 is alot of GM kills and I wondered if it was these 54 that had brought him to the top of all-time, so I checked back and realized that his GM kills were almost 10 times as many as anyone else's, 4451!
Now assuming he is anywhere near as good a pvper as the other board leaders (and that is a very generous assumption) then he may have been able to get 500 tops, which means at least 3951 of those kills are self kills. I looked over his Heroes numbers and found he only had about 5500 kills total which means that a good 73% (at least!) of his kills involve him running himself into molten lava. He gets no renown, exp, and only a limited number of tomb unlocks, the only reason I can imagine doing this for hours on end is to see yourself on the Leaderboards. The fact that the Leaderboards point him out as a fraud is why he fails.
